The 40th annual Homestake Opera House Festival of Trees helped usher the holiday spirit into Lead, with beautifully decorated trees and wreaths, good food from Cheyenne Crossing, and good company. Lead’s Festival of Trees, which was the first of its kind to be organized in the Black Hills area, helped raise $18,000 for programming and operations at the Homestake Opera House. The highest selling tree was $2,100 for the Lynn’s DakotaMart tree that featured bottles of alcohol, Lynn’s DakotaMart gas cards, fudge, coffee cups, and a variety of other gift items under the tree. The Leading Ladies Book Club tree, featuring a variety of books from the club selection, also brought in a high amount of $750. “It was a fun and festive evening with great food by Cheyenne Crossing and a wonderful performance by the Trinity United Methodist Bell Choir,” said Homestake Opera House Executive Director Thomas Golden. “Feedback from the public, both during the preview times and during the main event has been excellent. Thanks to everyone who made this year’s Festival of Trees a great success.” Pioneer photos by Wendy Pitlick
